What are Wall Street analysts saying about Ares Capital stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Ares Capital stock:
  • 1. National Securities analysts commented, "▪ Ares had extremely robust originations during the 3/31/19 quarter with over $1.95 billion of gross commitments versus $1.35 billion of exits, bringing the total portfolio at fair value to $13.06 billion from $12.42 billion Q/Q.
    ▪ The strong portfolio growth for ARCC also drove a significant core NII/share beat of $0.48 versus our estimate of $0.42. Notably, the heavy origination volume drove capital structuring service fees of $45.0mm on the quarter compared to our estimate of $26.7mm. Through 4/24 ARCC had $183mm of commitments compared to exits and repayments of $747mm with a backlog of $1.1 billion and pipeline of $195mm.
    ▪ While a platform the size of Ares really only needs one large deal to close for a big increase in commitments, we do expect origination volume to slow Q/Q for the 6/30/19 quarter. As a result, we think structuring fees and earnings will come down a bit but still remain comfortably above the $0.42/share of total dividends (two cents per share supplemental and forty cents regular).
    ▪ Management reiterated that they expect Ares to benefit from any credit dislocation by means of winning market share from weaker market participants. We tend to agree with this sentiment and expect that ARCC’s underwriting will enable them to withstand a slowing economy or a general pickup in defaults, both of which we think will materialize through 2019.
    ▪ We are revising our 2019 core NII/share estimate to $1.83 from $1.75 and our 2020 core NII/share estimate to $1.80 from $1.78." (5/1/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Ares Capital have outperformed the industry over the past six months. Further, the company has an impressive earnings surprise history, having surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in three of the trailing four quarters. Estimates have been stable lately ahead of the company's first-quarter 2019 earnings release. Its investment income growth is expected to continue, driven by the acquisition of American Capital, rise in demand for customized financing and improving economy. Further, the company is likely to record rise in investment commitments. However, mounting expenses are likely to hurt bottom-line growth to some extent. Moreover, the presence of high debt levels remain a major near term concern for the company." (4/16/2019)
